The Celtics will face the Philadelphia 76ers in the first round of the playoffs.

Because the NBA restarted its season at Walt Disney World’s campus, there is technically no home-court advantage. Still, Boston earned the higher seed and will be the designated “home team” for Games 1, 2, 5, and 7.

Below is the series schedule.

Game 1: Monday, Aug. 17, 6:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Boston, ESPN)

Game 2: Wednesday, Aug. 19, 6:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Boston, TNT)

Game 3: Friday, Aug. 21, 6:30 p.m. (NBC Sports Boston, TNT)

Game 4: Sunday, Aug. 23, 1 p.m. (ABC)

Game 5 (if necessary): Tuesday, Aug. 25, TBD (NBC Sports Boston, TNT)

Game 6 (if necessary): Thursday, Aug. 27, TBD (NBC Sports Boston, ESPN)


Game 7 (if necessary): Saturday, Aug. 29, TBD  (NBC Sports Boston, TNT)
